The World Cup only comes around once every 4 years. So that means that you’ve really got to do it up right when the time comes! Today we’re talking about hosting a World Cup 2014 party. Since the World Cup is in Brazil this year, you’ll notice some fun and delicious Brazilian influences.
Anyone who has been to Brazil knows that there is nothing yummier than Pao de Queijo or Brazilian Cheese Rolls. We love this recipe from Our Best Bites. The recipe is simple, delicious, and gluten free! These tasty treats make a perfect appetizer or a great snack to munch on throughout the game.
No party is complete without decorations. This party from Kara’s Party Ideas was originally for a 7 year old boy’s birthday party. However, we absolutely love the all of the theming. Particularly the flags from all of the countries participating in the World Cup really takes these party decorations from a run of the mill soccer party to a World Cup 2014 party!
If you’re planning on serving dishes that are on the heartier side, this Brazilian Skirt Steak with Golden Garlic Butter from Fine Cooking is absolutely scrumptious. Since you’re all not likely to be sitting around the dinner table while you’re watching the game, once the steak has cooked, we recommend cutting the steak into bite sized pieces and serving it up with toothpicks like an appetizer.
Finally, no party would be complete without something sweet. For dessert we love these Brazilian Chocolate Fudge Balls from To Food with Love. Simple to make, delicious to eat, and perfect for the 2014 World Cup since they are Brazilian.
Whatever you decide to do for World Cup 2014, we hope that you enjoy this special event that only comes around once every 4 years! And, one final note…. U.S.A! U.S.A! U.S.A!
